The North Atlantic igneous province is providing a rapidly expanding geological data set as a result of hydrocarbon exploration in the province. This focus of research means that several peer-reviewed publications have appeared recently. New isotopic dates within these publications are wholly supportive of our integration of the bio- and sequence stratigraphy. To recap, we identified that there were two intervals around the Paleocene-Eocene boundary, one characterized by late Paleocene to early Eocene Sequence T40, which yielded isotopic ages between 60.5 Ma and 57.5 Ma, and a younger interval characterized by sequences T45 and T50, which yielded isotopic ages of...
